A Texas murder suspect believed to have crossed into Canada at the Manitoba/North Dakota border in late June remains at large, with Manitoba RCMP on Tuesday releasing new photos of the suspect.
Derek Whisenand, 27, is thought to have illegally entered into Canada the week of June 24 near Haskett, Manitoba just South of Winkler after his vehicle was found in North Dakota near the border. At the time of an initial notice earlier this month it was said it was believed Whisenand proceeded to Winnipeg and possibly Eastern Canada.
Whisenand is described as 6 feet tall, 230 pounds with brown hair and brown eyes. RCMP said earlier this month that Whisenand was last seen with a black goatee, though new photos show what he may look like without goatee. He has a pentagram tattoo on his lower left wrist and is believed to be traveling with a large dog, possibly a mix breed of a German Shepherd and pitbull or boxer.
The suspect is considered dangerous, may be armed and should not be approached. If seen one should call 911. Tips can also be submitted anonymously through Crime Stoppers at www.manitobacrimestoppers.com or by phone at 1-800-222-8477
